Error message notebook_login

When I run this cell

from huggingface_hub import notebook_login


in my jupyter notebook the UI for entering the token. Upon entering the token I get the following error message:

I tired the account login as well, but get the same error message. I tried the following cell:

from huggingface_hub import HfApi, HfFolder

_AUTH_TOKEN = “{my token}”
api = HfApi()

  • HfFolder.save_token(_AUTH_TOKEN)

and get basically the same error message.

When I run

!huggingface-cli login

it doesn’t terminate.

Is there another way to login or am I doing something wrong? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Can you check if you have git installed by running git --version in cmd?

If it doesn’t exist installing that from here: Git - Downloading Package should fix the issue

I have git installed but still I’m getting the same error. Is there any other solution for this?

It’s a bug in Colab, which should be fixed now. You can also use

!huggingface-cli login

as an alternative way of logging in

I restarted my conda env and I’m able to login now, thanks !
